How I Use It
The application was used to model the setting of a unit. Student were able to make an immediate connection to the story characteristics. This was done with adult assistance. For younger students this application is difficult to navigate. It is complex and does not provide user friendly instructions
My Take
Google Earth provided an opportunity to go beyond the walls of the classroom and create a learning experience that allows students to critically think and create new knowledge.
